dira: Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier (Brad - Inappropriately Festive)
Dear YAGKYAS writer,

Sorry I didn't get this up before assignments went out! Thank you in advance for writing me a story! Above all please write something that makes you happy, and I'll be happy too. But now on to the optional details. :D

I asked for Nate/Brad, which is definitely my favorite pairing in this fandom. I'd love to see something kind of goofy and light-hearted for them--just a relaxed moment, or an ordinary slice of life, or porn is of course always welcome. I'd also love weird trope fic--someone getting transformed into a cat or a kid or having post-surgical amnesia (or, ooh, any kind of amnesia) or getting sex-swapped on the sexy/wacky end of the seriousness spectrum, or being destined soulmates or any other weird and mostly-fun cliche/trope/etc.

I also asked for Nate/Mike, which I don't get to see as a pairing very often but is one of my favorite relationships in the whole show. I'd love to see any exploration of their relationship--the weirdly intertwined authority relationship and the way Mike is really the only person Nate can turn to in Iraq--if you can add sex onto that as well it would be awesome! But I would be happy with gen/friendship fic looking at that too. Feel free to just silently AU Mike's wife out of existence if you want to, but don't do anything horrible to her or focus the story on the fact of cheating.

I also requested Nate and Evan as single characters! Nate is my very very favorite, and I love his competence and his protectiveness of his men and his quiet, understated badassery and his hidden woobietude and his green green eyes and basically everything about him. And Evan! I love Evan so much--I'd rather not see fic that looks at him as the butt of jokes or focuses on his comparative helplessness. I love his perspective on the Marines, and his general eagerness to learn everything about everyone and the way that he seems genuinely willing to be impressed by them and just. &Evan;

So, any of that!

I also mentioned a Chalion Saga fusion as my wild card. If you haven't read Lois McMaster Bujold's Curse of Chalion, no worries, totally disregard this. But if you have--oh my God, NATE IS SUCH A DEDICAT OF THE DAUGHTER, AND BRAD OF THE SON (AND RAY IS TOTALLY THE BASTARD'S). RIGHT? RIGHT?! So, you know, do with that what you will. *g*

If you have any questions, or if I have been totally unhelpful or anti-helpful, feel free to check in with [personal profile] iulia (iuliamentis on twitter and tubmlr). She knows what I like better than I do and is scarily good at keeping secrets from me! :D

YAGKYAS authors are revealed, so I can now claim White Hats (or at the AO3) as my own! It's a Nate/Brad + Team One Alpha (including Evan) story--my recipient, [livejournal.com profile] dome_epais, requested a fusion with the anime of my choice, but as I am sadly anime-deficient, I wrote a fusion with Holly Black's Curse Workers series instead. Because you know me and my propensity for Generation Kill + fantasy novels. *g*

And now, back to reading my way methodically through the YAGKYAS master list! I made it through a lot more stories this year before the reveal than I have in years past, but I'm not quite done yet.

First, because I have been hip-deep in family for the last few days and totally remiss in saying: I got a [livejournal.com profile] yagkyas story! It's Ascalon, and it's a Reign of Fire AU! I SUCCEEDED IN DRAGGING MY AUTHOR DOWN WITH ME INTO THIS MOVIE. :D :D :D Also, BRAD GETS TO ACTUALLY FIGHT DRAGONS IN A HUMVEE, YOU GUYS, COME ON, IT IS AMAZING.

Dear [livejournal.com profile] yagkyasyak (or Yagkyasperson or Yagkyaswriter as you prefer),

I don't rememeber which pairings/characters I requested. Nate/Brad probably, right? Maybe also Brad/Ray? Wow, I really don't remember. If I did request both of those, please resist any impulse to give me both by smooshing them into a threesome; I like both pairings, but not all three together. If I requested some other second pairing instead of Brad/Ray, um, never mind! Write that one if you like! Or gen about any of the single characters, I think I listed some of those too.

Wow, we are off to an excellent start here. Next year I will totally remember to make a note of what I request.

Okay, I do remember that my wild card prompt was Reign of Fire, because I was PRETTY EXCITED about that idea. If you have seen Reign of Fire, Reign of Fire spoilers )

If you haven't seen the movie, it actually--okay, I mean, brace yourself for the terrible CGI of the dragons and the fact that it is not by any means a cinematic masterpiece, but it has Christian Bale and Gerard Butler as OTP BFFs co-parenting a couple of dozen orphans in their post-apocalyptic castle in northern England where they hide from dragons, and then Matthew McConaughey shows up leading his militia of Americans who are going to free the world from terror dragons by Liberating The Natives Whether They Want It Or Not and, uh, well, we know that always works out well for Americans. There are, honest to God, thematic resonances with the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Plus dragons and Christian Bale speaking in his native accent. And being madly in love with Gerard Butler. And this happens:

Uh. But of course that prompt is optional! You don't need to write about Reign of Fire! I obviously love the canon setting, during or after the war--I love how high the stakes are in everything they do, and putting them in an apocalyptic future full of dragons is a way of raising those stakes, but there is plenty of tension in the original recipe version. And I also do love those moments when they can relax--one of my perennial requests is fic about guys doing laundry (or... not, I guess, in the case of GK) or any other little totally mundane moment. Or porn, porn is always good.

So, apologies if this is totally unhelpful, but I hope you'll have fun writing, and if you are totally stumped you can ask [personal profile] iulia for more coherent pointers, she knows what I like and delights in keeping secrets from me.
